Pagina 592 - Wisely regardful of th' embroiling sky In joyless fields and thorny thickets leaves His shivering mates, and pays to trusted man His annual visit: Half-afraid, he first Against the window beats, then brisk alights On the warm hearth; then, hopping o'er the floor, Eyes all the smiling family askance, And pecks, and starts, and wonders where he is, Till, more familiar grown, the table-crumbs Attract his slender feet.
Pagina 596 - If deed of honour did thee ever please, Guard them, and him within protect from harms. He can requite thee; for he knows the charms That call fame on such gentle acts as these, And he can spread thy name o'er lands and seas, Whatever clime the sun's bright circle warms. Lift not thy spear against the Muses' bower : The great Emathian conqueror bid spare The house of Pindarus, when temple and tower Went to the ground ; and the repeated air Of sad Elytra's poet had the power To save the Athenian walls...
Pagina 470 - Thou know'st the mask of night is on my face, Else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek For that which thou hast heard me speak to-night.

Pagina 328 - Desires compos'd, affections ever even ; Tears that delight, and sighs that waft to Heaven. Grace shines around her with serenest beams, And whispering angels prompt her golden dreams. For her th...
Pagina 239 - The orator rolled himself up, as it were, in his chair, and gave the most unrestrained indulgence to his speech — and how fraught with acuteness and originality was that speech, and in what copious and eloquent periods did it flow! The auditors seemed to be rapt in wonder and delight, as one observation, more profound or clothed in more forcible language than another, fell from his tongue.
Pagina 213 - History of the Cotton Manufacture in Great Britain;" with a Notice of its early History in the East, and in all the Quarters of the Globe ; a Description of the great Mechanical Inventions which have caused its unexampled extension in Britain ; and a View of the present state of the Manufacture, and the Condition of the Classes engaged in its several Departments.
Pagina 594 - Placed far amid the melancholy main, (Whether it be lone Fancy him beguiles ; Or that aerial beings sometimes deign To stand embodied, to our senses plain), Sees on the naked hill, or valley low, The whilst in ocean Phoebus dips his wain, A vast assembly moving to and fro : Then all at once in air dissolves the wondrous show.
Pagina 562 - The thing indeed, though I thought I saw something like it in progress for several years, has still somewhat in it paradoxical and mysterious. The spirit, it is impossible not to admire. But the old Parisian ferocity has broken out in a shocking manner. It is true, that this may be no more than a sudden explosion.
